Liver in ABQ

Beef, chicken, whatever... My father loves it but doesn't know where he can get it. Any suggestions for good liver dishes here (bonus for a rec for ankimo)?

    I seem to recall that your dad doesn't like straying too far from his hood, but FYI, the outstanding Trattoria Nostrani up in Santa Fe (I'd argue it trumps your Luca D'Italia fairly handily) usually has some sort of liver antipasto dish on the menu. The current menu sports a "pesche con flan di fegato grasso", or fois gras custard with peaches.

      Sounds wonderful. Actually he does make it up to Santa Fe—woe to the rest of the folks on the road.

      Cafe Jean-Pierre near Century Rio does a good homestyle braised liver dish with caramelized shallots.

        This should be on Southwest board, but any way -- Keller's either on Eubank near Juan Tabo or on Coors near Montano

          Oh! When CO moved to Mountain States I just thought that was the board's new name. Will report for a move.

          Any restaurants, though? My dad doesn't cook (85, no changing him now).
